Turning off AP isolation also known as client isolation

I bought a Google Nest Mini.  It says I need to shut off AP isolation or customer isolation in order to connect this newly purchased device.  Please help me figure how to achieve this on my modem! I went to settings but nothing matched!

Hi there. Thanks for taking the time to reach out. AP Isolation typical refers to networks on your modem other than the home. Disabling our Xfinity Wi-Fi hotspot usually does the trick for these devices. Here's some info on how to https://comca.st/3ut4CEB. Hope this helps!

Finally a solution that worked. Whoever is trying to "turn off AP isolation for Xfinity" or "turn off Wireless Isolation for Xfinity" just needs to turn of Xfinity Wi-Fi hotspot using the link above by XfinityJay. You can then verify your devices are visible on a Mac running `$ arp -a` on a Terminal. Thanks @XfinityJay !
